I made it through day eight and into day nine of my personal challenge. Day nine was Sunday and spent much of the day thinking about the challenge I made to myself. Why did I want to try this? What have I learned so far? What do I want to do now?
I wanted to try it because I know that increasing the plant foods I eat would be beneficial to my health and I wanted to lose weight. There are numerous news articles, studies, and other data out there that say eating fruits and vegetables are good for you. There are long-term benefits, such as reducing your risk of cancer. Plus there are immediate benefits of more energy, feeling fuller, clearer skin, improved concentration, reduce digestion problems, stronger immune system, and so many more.
